First of all; I loooove the new configuration screens. I'm one of the translators, so you'll know that I'm not "just saying" that.

One issue is, the space reserved for the "YES/NO" options are not enough for all translations. The new design works just fine for the overwhelming majority of languages, but the column is not wide enough for at least two languages. The attached screenshot is from Turkish translation. The choices are "EVET" and "HAYIR", both of which get clipped. The same issue is also present in the Finnish (Suomi) translation.

I could shorten the choices down to "E" and "H", but that would be neither good looking nor consistent.

Now, I realize that simply widening the last column will unnecessarily rob precious pixels from the option names themselves - would especially be an unfortunate waste in languages where this is not a problem. (The option names are now more cramped too, I know because I just had to shorten two of them).

Is it too much to ask a right-aligned, dynamic-width column  for this screen? Does anybody have any recommendations?

How about a checkbox?

exists in unicode, so that's not unreasonable

I'll have a look. I'm working on adding multiline support to text lists, so the space shouldn't become too much trouble.

Mod list would really benefit from ordering, anyway, since some mods can rely on each others.

Quite frankly, I believe we should keep a few things in separate screens. Some advanced option names are just too big when translated. I'd rather have that particular menu open the old window instead.

I've made the YES/NO column flexible and added multiline support in the latest nightly, let me know if that helps.
